    Rather dour welcome at the desk and young woman originally taking us to our table was obviously in a hurry for as to choose drinks ..we needed more time & help with the large wine menu full of wines we were unfamiliar with. She gave up on us & then it took a long time to get help. The young man then apparently in charge was very helpful & we were very happy with the wine he recommended. The rest of the meal was served by delightful staff who were explained the food offering well & answered our questions as best they could due to our limited French language skills. The food was interesting. ..some courses excellent others less to my taste. My only criticism was the fish could have been cooked slightly longer & I thought the sauce overwhelmed it's flavour...my husband however enjoyed the whole menu. Diners should be prepared for a whole evening of eating & waiting there was no hurry!

    Décor uniquely grand : a blend of 800 year-old romanesque architecture and contemporary, solid, tasteful interior design. Food of the utmost refinement and imagination. Stylish, attentive and yet relaxed service. Worth every Euro. Tout est calme et volupté! Bravo!

    Excellent dinner and very nice service. Only the dessert has some space for improvement.

    We spent our first time here today to celebrate our 19th wedding anniversary. We loved everything about it and will return for another special occasion.

    Thank you to everyone for a wonderful meal! We had the “Premier Chapitre” which was the first menu with the wine pairings by David, the Sommelier. The meal included a couple of wonderful surprises including a tomato soup that wasn’t on the menu.

    The food was beautifully presented and delicious. The combination of flavours were original but worked! The dessert was huge. The setting- in a cloister of the abbey- is truly unique.

    We had lunch here today - every course (there were many) was fabulous. More food than expected - we couldn't manage the cheese course. Highly recommend!

    Great food, wonderful presentation! A little soft music would have been nice. Unfortunately the inner courtyard was under renovation, so the view was lacking.

    It was a wonderful night from the aperitif to dessert. But be careful when you choose 8 plats, you must be really hungry. Anyway, it was beyond my expectations!

    Very innovative and successful vegetable kitchen. Hardly any service in the lobby. Service could benefit from improvements.

    Soirée extraordinaire en tous les points ( mets,service,cadre) le personnel est très agréable et souriant. Un grand merci au chef qui a bien voulu nous recevoir avec sa brigade à la fin du service et qui a eu pour seule question de savoir ce qu'il pouvait améliorer Un magnifique plus pour l'accès libre à l'abbaye Très belle soirée que nous renouvelleront

About the restaurant

RESTAURANT GASTRONOMIQUE - Contigu à l’hôtel, au sein de ce havre de paix sans pareil que constitue le prieuré Saint-Lazare de Fontevraud-l'Abbaye , prend place le restaurant Fontevraud Le Restaurant, dont la haute cuisine est signée Thibaut Ruggeri, un jeune chef reconnu. Dans un design sobre et épuré, on y déguste une cuisine créative, contemporaine, sensorielle.

DU BEAU, DU BON, DU LOCAL - Fort d’une riche expérience puisée dans les plus grandes maisons françaises, le Chef Thibaut Ruggeri se concentre sur une cuisine de l’essentiel, celle où le superflu et l’apparat n’ont pas leur place. La carte évolue en permanence au fil des saisons, en fonction de la disponibilité des produits locaux … et même ultra-locaux puisque nombreux sont ceux cultivés au sein-même de l’Abbaye Royale !

L’EXIGENCE DU DURABLE - Modèle d’exemplarité, Fontevraud Le Restaurant s’inscrit parfaitement dans le projet global de l’Abbaye Royale, « Fontevraud – cité durable », qui lui a valu l’exigeante labellisation ISO 26000. Le chauffage et l’eau chaude du restaurant, comme de l’ensemble du site, sont entièrement assurés par une chaufferie à granulés de bois, permettant de s’affranchir des énergies fossiles.
